Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) wants to probe the Federal Bureau of Investigation for “targeting” a conservative think tank without “credible allegation of a crime.” The Concerned Women for America came under attack by the FBI in 2016. Then, the FBI performed a Charity Assessment. Jordan is says the assessment was unwarranted in the first place.

According to their website, “Concerned Women for America protects and promotes Biblical values and Constitutional principles through prayer, education, and advocacy.” The group is notably pro-life, pro-Israel and against critical race theory.

First, “third-party charity rating services deemed the charity to be ‘underperform[ing],'” according to the Ohio lawmaker. As a result, in July 2016 the FBI opened an investigation on CWA. In July of this year, a heavily redacted document detailing the investigation was released. Then, Jordan penned a letter Wednesday to FBI Director Christopher Wray.

“This document raises serious questions about the FBI’s targeting of domestic civil society organizations on the basis of a third-party opinion, and not any credible allegation of a crime,” Jordan wrote. While the original investigation took place under then Director James Comey, Jordan worries that it’s dated evidence of a greater precedent at the bureau.

Now, Jordan is conducting oversight over the FBI’s Charity Assessments. As ranking member of the House Judiciary Committee he is demanding they hand over all of their unredacted assessments, including CWA’s.

In response, the organization thanked Jordan in a tweet. “Thank you, [Rep. Jordan] for your efforts on this,” it read. “Freedom and liberty are severely burdened when Americans cannot trust their government officials and institutions. We are grateful for your oversight and look forward to finally getting some answers.”

Trump: Tanks to Ukraine could escalate to use of ‘NUKES’



ukraine tanks scaled

Former President Donald Trump stated bluntly on Truth Social,  “FIRST COME THE TANKS, THEN COME THE NUKES. Get this crazy war ended, NOW. So easy to do!”

Trump was referring to the escalation of war in Ukraine. He, like many other commentators and lawmakers, are warning that the decision to continue sending weapons – and now tanks – could potentially lead to the use of “nuclear weapons.”

It’s mission creep and it’s dangerous, they say.

Why? Because Russian President Valdimir Putin has indicated in two different speeches that he would use nuclear weapons to defend Russia, if needed. Those warnings are not just bluster but a very real possibility.

And the escalation of war is visible.

Russia launched 55 missiles strikes across Ukraine Thursday, leaving 11 dead. The strikes come one day after the United States and Germany agreed to send tanks to Ukraine in an effort to aide the country. 47 of the 55 missiles were shot down according to Ukraine’s Air Force command.

Eleven lives were lost and another 11 were injured additionally leaving 35 buildings damaged in the wake of the attacks. According to The New York Times, Denys Shmyhal, said in a post on Telegram. “The main goal is energy facilities, providing Ukrainians with light and heat,” he said.

Ukraine is now demanding that they need F-16 fighter jets. In a post on twitter Ukrainian lawmaker, Oleksiy Goncharenko said, “Missiles again over Ukraine. We need F16.”

The US has abstained from sending advanced jets in the chances that a volatile decision could foster more dangerous attacks like former President Trump’s post on Truth referred to. If the US did authorize the decision to lend Ukraine the F-16 jets Netherlands’ foreign minister, Wopke Hoekstra, would be willing to supply them. According to The New York Times, Hoekstra told Dutch lawmakers, “We are open-minded… There are no taboos.”

F-16 fighter jets are complex to work on, they are not the average aircraft that can be learned in a matter of weeks. It can take months for pilots to learn how to fly these birds. European and US officials have the concern that Ukrainian forces could potentially use the jets to fly into Russian airspace and launch attacks on Russian soil.

Western allies are trying to avoid such a provocation, because that could lead to nuclear warfare in reference to what Putin has said he would do to defend his country.
